TRIPOLI - The militant group Islamic State said on Thursday it had blown up two warplanes at an air base that it had seized near the central Libyan city of Sirte.

The group published pictures on social media that it said showed the two destroyed two military aircraft.

The Islamist rebels fighters seized Sirte's military and civilian airport two weeks ago.
